The IHS Markit Vietnam Manufacturing PMI fell to 51.8 in October 2020 from a 14-month high of 52.2 in September, but still signalling an improvement in the health of the sector as COVID-19 in the country remained under control. New orders increased solidly for the second month running, subsequently feeding through to a similarly-paced increase in production. New export orders were unchanged amid some demand weakness in markets where the virus continues to cause problems, notably in Europe. Meantime, employment grew for the first time since January, though at only a marginal pace amid ongoing signs of spare capacity, with backlogs of work continuing to drop. Prices data showed input cost rose the most since August 2018. Meanwhile, selling prices rose for the second consecutive month but only marginally, amid requests for discounts by clients and competitive pressures. Lastly, sentiment was slightly lower than in September and weaker than the series average. source: Markit Economics

Vietnam Manufacturing Sector Shrinks in July
The IHS Markit Vietnam Manufacturing PMI fell to 47.6 in July 2020 from 51.1 in June, as the COVID-19 crisis continued to impact demand and activity. Both output and new orders contracted after growing in June, amid a sharp drop in export sales and a further reduction in employment. Also, manufacturers scaled back their purchasing activity, stocks of inputs and finished goods inventories. Suppliers' delivery times lengthened for the eighth time in as many months. Difficulties receiving items from suppliers in China and issues with sea transportation were reportedly behind the latest instance of lead time lengthening. Regarding prices, input costs went up for the second straight month, though the rate of inflation remained muted. Meanwhile, output prices were reduced for the sixth month running. Looking ahead, business confidence weakened slightly, but remained positive.
